A Songwriter’s Manifesto


“The successes are about the privilege of doing more work, not about winning.”
— Seth Godin, in The Icarus Deception

I am sitting on a small, wooden bridge with the bugs in the morning sun in Chester, VT.

I have just finished reading The Icarus Deception by Seth Godin. It is about the passing of industrialist society, the rise of the connection economy and making art.

Along with some talented people, I have been nominated for a Whalie, an award as solo singer/songwriter in southeastern CT.

As Seth says, this is about the privilege of having and growing an audience.

Here’s another gem from Seth: “Art is a leap into the void, a chance to give birth to your genius and to make magic where there was no magic before.”

All I want to say to those who have heard or a might hear my songs is, Thanks for listening. And may we someday meet to share whatever we have in common.
